Real nice weather sunny and mid 60's went on a nice Sunday ride on the side roads which are finally nice and clear no mud or snow.. Had to stop for awhile for a Moose crossing on county road 14.




Moose just stayed in the road for about 5 minutes taking there time.


Interesting piece of old mining equipment.

It was a lovely day in central Texas and I got in 37 miles on my vintage Trek to downtown Dallas and around the area.

Two of the pics are at Dallas City Hall.
One at Dealey Plaza looking through window of Grassy Knoll across the road.
Also one with the arch gateway that has an Asian architecture look to me.

The funny one is a mural of Godzilla shooting flames on Big Tex and a robot shooting water on him.

A number of years back Big Tex did catch on fire and had to be repaired.

Today was a 30-mile loop along the Catskill Escarpment, also called the Wall of Manitou.


From Woodstock it was north to Palenville where there’s a fine little country store.


A few miles eastward, then back south to Zena, where I turned back north and into Woodstock and home at the foot of Overlook Mountain.

This was my first ride since I cleaned and tweaked the PX10 which performed well.


In particular the long cage SLJ6600 rear derailleur delivers smooth silent shifts even with big jumps on the wide range freewheel.

I'm confused.
I rarely take selfies, so which side of your bike is your mirror mounted?
I assume on your left as you are facing ahead riding down the road?
Your pics are nice, but making me dizzy.
Thanks,

My fabulous '86 SIzzling Peach Volpe got the honor of the first ride, it slightly relaxed geomentry makes it a great early season ride.

Just a little Cul de Sac cruising as I didn't want to get too far from home on the first ride. I have to learn how to make my starting point

Since blooming trees seem to be the "photo of the day" here's my humble submission.


If you're interested there are more gritty details and pics on my FB page Trina Brady.
Wow, it's like Van Gogh's paintings.
Vincent Van Gogh painted some blooming orchard and fruit trees.
Beautiful!

Went to the Birmingham Bicycle Club meeting this evening at a local brewery. After the meeting I did a short 13 mile ride around downtown on my '65 Schwinn Racer 3-speed. Wonderful weather tonight!


Railroad Park.

Favorite fountain at City Walk Park.

Legacy Arena at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC).

City Walk Park runs for 10 blocks under the recently rebuilt I-59/I-20 Interstate bridges in downtown.

This afternoon and evening's ride was to and from the weekly shift at the Rusty Spoke co-op. The afternoon gusting headwinds were character-building but just about the perfect temperature, and the work time rather busy with many customers, but the ride home (including dinner at a little Chinese place) was nearly perfect. The [REDACTED]-pound chrome cruiser and all its blinking lights wasn't fast as it carried donated parts south and fried rice north, but it's comfortable and fun.

Nice sunny start to the day, but the forecast said it wouldn't last and rain was due later. I finished work early so after lunch was able to head out for a few hours and managed to get back home before the rain started.


Some more color in the form of some new mural finds.


This one has 'cattitude'


I love the styling of old American cars, so my final pic of the day features 4 wheels rather than 2. We don't get many of your old classics here in the UK as they are huge on our tiny congested roads, and our petrol prices will make even those with deep pockets wince. So this is a rare sight on this side of the pond, and what a great color and amazing condition, and enough chrome to keep the C&V crowd happy, a beautiful 1949 Cadillac.

Where do you go on new bike day? Anywhere. It doesn't matter ... as long as you don't have a mechanical. You could ride underneath a bridge...



or, if you have one, to the shore...



New bike day. It's the best day.

Graffiti/mural artists must be art school students or pros.
The sense of colours in particular is exceptional, isn't of lay people.
Art fans must like London!

Today's ride was to the Phoenix Metro Bicycle Club's quarterly membership breakfast down in Tempe. Last fall, I refit my Raleigh Professional Mk IV with a different handlebar setup after an overhaul, but I hadn't had the chance for a longer-distance test, so I thought today might be s good opportunity.

I led a small but intrepid group through the Biltmore and Arcadia districts, then south along the Crosscut Canal pathway. A stop at a bike shop to see the latest Pivot models, then another stop at a plaque commemorating the German POW escape tunnel, and then to a filling breakfast with friendly folks.

On the way back, we enjoyed a tailwind that made up for months of all those cursed headwinds. Stopped for a selfie at one of the places named after my great-great-uncle,


and then sped up the newly-paved Grand Canal path to the Indian Medical Center to see how the Free Bikes 4 Kidz collection drive was coming along.





After that, a stomp up & over 7th Street for some steep hill work, then home with 43 miles for the day and some fun times in the memories.

First ride of the year in shorts!



Had a busy winter and early spring, so not much riding lately. I've tried to ride the Super Course once a week, but that's about it. Today felt nice and warm, though. Same old ride, but this time a wedding party at the top. With the way it's been raining, these guys were really, really lucky!
